King Cocktail Shake Again With Eddie, London 1950s Book Cover
'Eddie's Club' was the night club owned by Eddie Clark and situated at 25 Albermarle Street in London's Mayfair.
Eddie went to sea aged fifteen with intention of becoming an ship's officer. Instead, after three years, he found that he had become a ship's bar-tender. In the years that followed Eddie traveled round the world and mixed drinks for royalty and film stars before coming ashore in 1934 and taking up as the head bar-tender at the Berkeley Hotel. He created Dublin's first cocktail bar in 1936 and was then at The Savoy until war intervened and in 1940 Eddie swapped his shaker for a gun. Eddie was released from the British army in 1946 and was once again reunited with his old pal "the shaker".
Shake Again With Eddie was originally published by Eddie Clark, Eddie's Club, Albermarle Street London W1.
